Thai science expert finds efficient way to use air-con

A Thailand University expert confirmed that using a fan and turning your air conditioner up to 27°C will save money. 

Jessada Denduangboripant, a Chulalongkorn University science lecturer, said that the move would allow consumers to reduce electricity bills by 10 to 30 per cent.

He spoke up after the advice caused controversy on social media.

The Thailand ministry explained said that combining a fan with air-con increases airflow while decreasing the temperature by 2 degrees.

This method saves more electricity than using an air conditioner at 23-24°C, it added.

Backing the advice, Jessada said that he used the fan-and-aircon method frequently.

He explained that the air-con compressor doesn’t take load when the temperature is set higher.

Reducing the room’s temperature to 27°C will decrease humidity to a comfortable level, he said. Meanwhile, turning on a fan will make the room cooler as the air current helps the body to shed heat.
